Well, my baseball’s been incredibly crazy lately so I haven’t been able to get around to working on any new projects. Right now I’ve pretty much decided on the following: baseball bat rack (for my room), cherokee star (for my room), fibonacci guage (for my calculus teacher), a pendant for my girl, a crayon box for my 7yo brother, and probably some kind of hot plate for my mom, for my dad I’m thinking a bandsaw box, or a wooden journal, a light house (for my dad) a few ...

Don Butler had posted a picture of a birch that was really exfoliating its bark and wondered what was going on. ...
This slab of W redcedar has been laying around in my barn for years. I finnaly decided to use it for something. I freehanded the drawing from a picture of a largemouth on Googleimages. Then I routed the details in with my craftsman 2hp plunge router.. More to come!
